Northern Oconto and Langlade counties will soon see the return of sled dog racing. During the last weekend of February, roughly 50 teams of sled dogs will meet in the Town of Doty for the inaugural Doty Dog Days of Winter Sled Dog Race and Winter Festival.
There will be ample viewing areas at the start and finish lines, as spectators are encouraged to check out the race preparations, and could even be asked to help hold the teams at the start.
Other events at the festival include kid and adult dog sled rides, a photography contest, a snowshoe hike, s’mores, hot drinks, and a fire. The event is scheduled to take place Feb. 25 and 26.
